Dannon pulls Cam Newton endorsement deal over comment to female reporter
The fallout from Cam Newton’s comments to a female reporter continued Thursday, as one sponsor said it would “no longer work with” the Carolina Panthers quarterback.
Michael Neuwirth, a spokesperson for Dannon, maker of the Oikos yogurt brand, said in a statement that the brand was “shocked and disheartened at the behavior and comments of Cam Newton towards [Charlotte Observer reporter] Jourdan Rodrigue, which we perceive as sexist and disparaging to all women.
Jones was drafted for his speed, quickness and big-play ability, but he’s a capable inside pounder when needed — see the red-zone TD he scored on his solid night in relief (13 carries for 49 yards). He’s not built to take 20 carries a game; then again, neither was Montgomery. That’s not the identity of this offense, anyway.
The Packers came into Thursday with a 71-29 pass-run split. Part of the reason was game flow as they trailed big against the Falcons in a Week 2 loss and against the Bengals in a Week 3 win, but with Rodgers dealing and “extending the running game” with his sharp short passing, Green Bay can get away with that like no team in the league.
Jones is a plus athlete, and while he didn’t catch any passes against the Bears, he can be an asset as a receiver while Montgomery and wideout Davante Adams (head) are both presumed to miss significant time. When tackles David Bakhtiari and Bryan Bulaga return, Jones will be able to turn the corner for home runs on the edge.
The bottom line is, having one all-time Aaron lining up behind Cheap Jerseys Sunglasses center means any Aaron, Ty, Jamaal, Tom, Dick, Harry, James or Eddie can mesh with him in the Cheap Jerseys Website backfield. Between Jones and another rookie, Devante Mays, Rodgers and the Packers’ offense can and will remain an explosive machine.
